STRUGGLING WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RAISING A FAMILY?
ROCK-SOLID FAMILIES is a spiritual training manual that identifies twelve principles or foundational stones that spiritually strong families have in common.
Author Janell Rardon offers inspiration, practical methodology, and strong scriptural application for transforming and ordinary home into a fortress of faith.
“Blindly, my husband and I embarked on our adventure of raising a Christian family”, says Janell. “It took a great deal of effort and relearning in order to overcome a dysfunctional family background.
My husband and I were raised in homes where our fathers were alcoholics. Having strong mothers, strong faith, and a gracious, redeeming God has enabled us to face our difficulties and somehow surmount the residual effects of this type of home environment.”
Janell and her husband committed to relearn what growing a family is all about. They read all they could about marriage, family, and relationships. Through turbulent waters, they remain focused on the task of raising a strong families. Written after twenty years of ministry, research, personal experience, avid listening, and the keen observation of rock-solid families and not-so-rock-solid families, this book offers hope for parents who lack confidence in providing spiritual leadership.
